He was a poor weaver.
Vasuki was his wife. She was very dutiful.
One day Vasuki was drawing water from a well.
Tiruvalluvar called her.
Vasuki left the rope and bucket half way down the well, she hurried to her husband.
Lo! The rope and the bucket hung in mid-air!
Vasuki waited upon her husband, then she returned to the well. She drew up the bucket.
